We also collect, use, and share aggregated data,such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose (e.g., analytics). Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law, as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy statement.


To be in a position to proceed with a business relationship with you or another person (for example, a legal entity for which you are the authorized representative / agent or beneficial owner), you must provide your personal data to us which are necessary for the required commencement and execution of a business relationship and the performance of our contractual obligations. We are, furthermore, obligated to collect such personal data given the provisions of the applicable money laundering legislation which require that we verify your identity before we enter a contract or a business relationship with you or another person. Depending on the circumstances, you might have to provide us with your identity card/passport, your full name, place of birth (city and country), and your residential address so that we may comply with our statutory obligations as mentioned above.

Kindly note that, if you do not provide us with the required data, then we will not be allowed to commence or continue our business relationship with you or another relevant person.


We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter or have entered with you.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
  • Where you have provided your consent.

Note that we may process your personal data based on more than one legal basis depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal basis, we are relying on to process your personal data.


During the performance of our contractual and statutory obligations, your personal data may be provided to various departments within Jinius, but also to other companies of the Bank of Cyprus Group. Various service providers and suppliers may also receive your personal data so that we may perform our obligations and provide our services. Such service providers and suppliers enter into contractual agreements with Jinius by which they observe confidentiality and data protection according to the data protection law and GDPR.

It must be noted that we may disclose data about you for any of the reasons set out hereinabove, or if we are legally required to do so, or if we are authorized under our contractual and statutory obligations or if you have given your consent. All data processors appointed by us to process personal data on our behalf are bound by contract to comply with the GDPR provisions. Under the circumstances referred to above, recipients of personal data may be, for example:

  • Supervisory and other regulatory and public authorities because of a statutory obligation. Some examples are the Central Bank of Cyprus, the European Central Bank, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, the income tax authorities, criminal prosecution authorities,

We will keep your personal data for as long as we have a business relationship with you as either an individual or as an appointed representative of a legal entity, or a beneficial owner.

Once our business relationship with you has ended, we may keep your personal data for the longest of the following periods: (i) any retention period set out in our retention policy which is in line with regulatory requirements relating to retention or (ii) the end of the period in which legal action or investigations might arise in respect of the products and services provided.

We may keep your data for longer if we cannot delete it for legal, regulatory, or technical reasons. If we do, we will make sure that your privacy is protected and only use it for these purposes.

For prospective customer data we shall keep your personal data for 12 months from the date that a quotation was provided to you, unless you have requested that we maintain this data for a further period as determined by yourself.


In establishing and carrying out a business relationship, we generally do not use any automated decision-making. We may process some of your data automatically, with the goal of assessing certain personal aspects (profiling), to enter or perform a contract with you or another person (for example, a legal entity for which you are the authorized representative), in the following cases:

  • Data assessments are carried out in the context of combating money laundering and fraud.
  • Profiling, with the help of specialized tools, whereby your personal data, such as contact details, products and services portfolio information, transaction pattern and behaviour (including spending habits), financial background and demographic data (including family status) is processed for the purpose of developing and creating specialized products and services.

In the rare instances that we process your personal data by solely automated means (including profiling), we shall only process your data for such purpose, if we have your explicit consent to do so.


We may process your personal data to tell you about products, services and offers that may be of interest to you or your business.

The personal data that we process for this purpose consists of information you provide to us and data we collect and/or infer when you use our services, such as information on your policy transactions. We study all such information to form a view on what we think you may need or what may interest you. In some cases, profiling is used, i.e., we process your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects to provide you with targeted marketing information on products.

We can only use your personal data to promote our products and services to you if we have your explicit consent to do so or, in certain cases, if we consider that it is in our legitimate interest to do so.

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes, which includes profiling, by contacting at any time our Customer Services Centre or any of our branches either in person or in writing.
